Natalie's Score: 88/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Selection and patience are the keys to this award winning Gran Reserva’s success. First there’s the fruit selection in the vineyard, where only the best Tempranillo grapes are picked. Then with the crush, only the best free-run juice is used to make the final wine. Patience is required for the long ageing process: at least two years in American oak and then a further three-to-six years in bottle before release. The result is a beautifully balanced, soft-textured red that’s delicious with a lamb casserole, chorizo sausage or roast chicken. My note: Mocha, blackberry nose with smooth texture and full-bodied warmth. Good mouth-prickling acidity and a satisfying finish. Tempranillo food pairings: Babaganoush, game birds.
